Belize & Mexico

CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS There is a reason why nobody hangs out in mainland Belize – the water around the barrier islands is absolutely amazing. Along with everyone else, we jumped on the first ferry to Caye Caulker and couldn’t believe the color of the water on the way over. Unfortunately since it’s a small […]

Guatemala

CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS Getting into Guatemala was not fun. For some reason, they timed the shuttle to drive through the ugly urban sprawl of Guatemala City smack dab in the middle of rush hour on a Friday evening.
